It took awhile, but we got past the inspection. It cost more than we wanted, of course. And we were worried (unnecessarily so, I believe) that the buyers might walk. Now we’re thinking they’d have caved on most everything. But, who knows?
I think I can count on two fingers the number of times we didn’t get dinged for something during the inspection. And that’s out of LOTS of sales. We do the same thing to sellers when we buy, so it’s hard to complain.
Anyway, we got the good news today that the house appraised for the amount it needed to. That’s another big hurdle, though not as big as it’s been the past 1-5 years.
Now, all that’s left is a) our buyers get through underwriting and are approved for their loan; and b) the same for the buyers of their house. If that deal falls through, we fall through.
I think this is the first time we’ve sold with a contingency for the buyers to sell their house. Don’t like it. Hopefully, we’re tap dancing in ten days.
Yes, I’m counting the days.
